Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

After not having internet access for 4 days, I am finally able to get online (Bell finally repaired the problem) and blog again. So I want to say Season's Greetings to everyone. This is a precious photograph to me, of my brother Paul with his new drum set and me and my sister Marilyn with new dolls on Christmas morning, many, many Christmases ago. I have fond memories of my childhood Christmases - the food, the cold weather, the relatives visiting, the boxes of presents that came in the mail, the traditions. We had less then, so all sorts of things were precious and only to be had at Christmas - for example, a box of chocolates was a rare treat. Now, we have treats every day, all year long. Here's to getting back to simplicity, and the continuation of loved traditions. Cheers, everyone.

It's true...everything seemed so precious and SPECIAL back then. I remember getting a toy called Phoney Balony" for Chanukah and I loved it. One year I got the album Magical Mystery Tour and I just loved it. Great memories of simpler times.

Great photo! I remember getting a mandarin orange in my stocking each year and it was a big deal!
